After years of bad relationships and a cheating ex-fiancé, twenty-eight-year-old Mia Martinelli prefers healing her patients’ hearts on the Cardiac Care floor rather than risking having her heart broken again. But that all comes to a screeching halt when caring for the head roadie for Runaway Train puts her into the orbit of drummer and Latin Lover, AJ Resendiz. After a scorching weekend of steamy passion, Mia’s intention of getting out with her heart unscathed is challenged by the stud with the wicked sense of humor, especially when he wants to continue seeing her. But when the harsh reality of AJ’s hoard of female admirers sends her insecurities into overdrive, Mia bails, leaving him handcuffed to his bathroom shower.
AJ never imagined that after two weeks of the best sex and female companionship he’d ever experienced, he would need rescued by his band mates from his shower prison. Although he tries to forget the sensual brunette whose curves made his mouth water, AJ can’t get her out of his mind…or his heart. Months later when he finally seeks Mia for answers as to why she left, nothing could prepare him for their life-altering reunion.
Can AJ prove to Mia that regardless of the women after his body, his heart belongs only to her?
Feisty Review – 4.5 stars!
Hot, Hot, Hot is all have to say about AJ Resendiz! First, if you haven’t read Music of the Heart, I highly recommend that you do. You will understand the characters and the dynamics, not to mention you will enjoy the story so much more. I loved AJ from the very start when I first met him on the tour bus in Music. Don’t yell, but I kinda liked him for Abby… Stop yelling because I really like she and Jake together. REALLY!! They are great together and she is exactly what he needs. I will be upfront, they are my favorite couple, even though I really like AJ. I can’t wait for their novella to come out – due in December, which will lead into Rhys’s book in the spring. Just a little shameless KA plug! Beat of the Heart flows really well. The scenes are seamless and it’s a beautifully told love story. Their love story is very different from Abby and Jake’s – they had such a deep emotional connection before they became physical. NOT the hot Latin Lover and his Sicilian lady!! AJ is very sensual and get ready for lots and lots of hot, sweaty lovin! This is Katie Ashley’s steamiest book yet – way to go Katie!
I LOVE the boys of Runaway Train! They make you want to hang out with them, drink beer around a bonfire, ride ATVs, have smores…. (you’ll get my references after you read this gem!) Each and every one of them is fantastic! Some of my favorite scenes were when the boys were together. Ok, so back to AJ and Mia. Have I mentioned that I love AJ? My mantra during the book was “he’s fiction, he’s fiction, he’s fiction!”. To me he’s the male version of Abby. Let me explain. He comes from a good, loving family with little to no baggage. He handles all the situations really well. He doesn’t play games and he gets to the point. There is little to no misunderstandings with him – IF Mia would stop running!! She drove me crazy! She is not my favorite female lead and maybe it’s that I don’t think anyone is good enough for AJ. She has a troubling past that keeps her from trusting him. And she continually lets her past interfere with her present and future with him. He knows all about her past and he is always trying to convince her that he’s not like the others. That he’s different. THIS IS AJ we’re talking about and he couldn’t be sweeter and sexier and more honest with her. I don’t know why he kept chasing her but he does. I really wanted to like her, I came around a tiny bit in the end.
There are so many fun things that happen for all of them in this book. Reading this, you feel like part of their gang, their family. Oh and guess who makes a surprise appearance, ya, I’m not telling! You’ll have to find out when you read the book! Finishing this book I was really happy and really down at the same time. I loved how it ended, but my friends have left for a bit, until Jake and Abby come back with more of their story. There are some stories that when it’s over, you really miss the characters. This group of great guys and their girls, well, they’ve stuck with me and I enjoy being with them each and every time. In the end this is a feel good romance with hot sex. Does it get better than that?
A woman with no future…
Live fast, die young–anything else is a fantasy for Six. She’s endured the worst the sectors had to throw at her, but falling in with Dallas O’Kane’s Sector Four gang lands her in a whole new world of danger. They’re completely open about everything, including their sexuality–but she hasn’t survived this long by making herself vulnerable. Especially not to men as dominant as Brendan Donnelly.
A man without a past…
Bren is a killer, trained in Eden and thrown to the sectors. His one outlet is pain, in the cage and in the bedroom, and emotion is a luxury he can’t afford–until he meets Six. Protecting her soothes him, but it isn’t enough. Her hunger for touch sparks a journey of erotic discovery where anything goes–voyeurism, flogging, rough sex. He has only one rule: he won’t share her.
In Bren’s arms, Six is finally free to let go. But his obsession with the man who made him a monster could destroy the fragile connection they’ve forged, and cost him the one thing that makes him feel human–her love.
Book Dame’s Rating 4.5
I’ve read books about broken souls and they always tear at my heart. Six definitely does that, her past breaks my heart. I enjoyed this take on her story. Focusing on her gaining strength and self worth, not reliving her horrid past. We get a taste of the life she left behind and why she is so unsure of what is real and who to trust. And of course this book in the Beyond series is smoking hot, just like the others! Seeing Bren lose some of his hard shell, showing softness towards Six, was a nice surprise. Watching Six find her way and becoming her own person, pulled me into the story. Great book, love this series! Can not wait for the next book!

Review for Beyond Shame
Review for Beyond Control

But after the trauma of her past, can Stella ever trust another man? Can she overcome her demons to find her happily ever after?
As soon as my lips made contact I had to reign myself in. I wanted to devour her. She was so incredibly sweet. I swiped my tongue across her bottom lip, begging for entrance, I could have cried for joy when she opened up for me. My tongue slipped into her warm mouth, massaging hers in a slow torturous rhythm.
My tongue rode hers the way I wanted to be riding her. My cock was so hard; the zipper of my jeans was making its mark. Unknowingly id backed her up against the wall. She was panting, I slid my hands down to her curves and grabbed her ass, and she let out moan that nearly had me cuming in my pants.
I squeezed her ass harder, before moving my hands to her thighs and lifting her. She wrapped her legs around my waist. I nestled the hard ridge in my pants against her and started moving. I couldn’t help it, she felt so good.
That’s the rules at Elite.
Just as nineteen-year-old Carly Hutchinson’s life falls on hard times, she’s offered a job at Elite, a secret organization that provides beautiful women to wealthy men with no strings attached.

Book Dame’s Rating 4 stars
What, wow, crazy! My head is spinning I’m lost. Where the heck did the real Carlton go? Did we even know him? Not that we got much of him in this book, and I’m not happy with him. Holy, Benton where did you come from, and when did you turn sweet? I don’t know how Liz even knows what day it is, much less want is going on.
Palmer, thank goodness for you! Beat line in the book!! “Barnes and Noble must have a book on how to be gay, because you’re doing it all fucking wrong Palmer!”
Great curve balls!! I’m on my toes and have no idea where we are going!! Nicely done!!

Book Heaux Rating: 5 Stars!
I don’t know what kind of spell Mrs. Terri Anne Browning has place on me…. But I am seriously sickening in love with this series. It’s like no matter how much I read about the men of Demon’s Wings it’s just never enough! I want more of these guys!
I’m am so emotionally invested in the lives of these men that their happiness feels like my happiness. Shane and Harper were just…. Awesome. Every time I read a scene with them together I felt a tingling in my chest. I just wish this book was longer! LOL! I know, I know! I sound like a loser…. But I want more of them!!
Terri Anne hurry up and get that next book out!!!
Terri Anne Browning
Hated school and reading until her aunt handed over her first romance novel at the age of twelve, as crazy aunts tend to do. It gave her a passion for the written word that has only increased over the years. At sixteen she started writing her own novellas, forcing her sister to be her one woman fan club. Now she has a few more fans and a lot more passion for writing. Reese: A Safe Haven Novella was her first Indie published book. The Rocker That Holds Me changed the tables and kicked off The Rocker… series featuring the sinfully delicious members of Demon’s Wings. Terri Anne lives just outside of Birmingham, AL with her husband and three children.

She refuses to be owned.
Alexa Parrino escaped a life of servitude and survived danger on the streets to become one of the most trusted, influential people in Sector Four, where the O’Kanes rule with a hedonistic but iron fist. Lex has been at the top for years, and there’s almost nothing she wouldn’t do for the gang…and for its leader. Lie, steal, kill—but she bows to no one, not even Dallas O’Kane.
He’ll settle for nothing less.
Dallas fought long and hard to carve a slice of order out of the chaos of the sectors. Dangers both large and small threaten his people, but it’s nothing he can’t handle. His liquor business is flourishing, and new opportunities fuel his ambition. Lex could help him expand his empire, something he wants almost as much as he wants her. And no one says no to the king of Sector Four.
Falling into bed is easy, but their sexual games are anything but casual. Attraction quickly turns to obsession, and their careful dance of heady dominance and sweet submission uncovers a need so deep, so strong, it could crush them both.
Book Dame’s Rating 4.5 Stars
I love these books, I get wrapped up in these characters and the O’Kane world. Dallas O’Kane rules a powerful gang, in a ruthless world. Love is never easy but power takes it to whole new level. Lex is not impressed with power, and is in love with the man not the king. Lex has a Robin Hood element to her, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. She has more power then she ever realized.Now she has an opportunity to change more then she ever imagined, but that’s never been her dream. Dallas on the other hand, craves power and land. What will he do to achieve more? Will he understand love holds its own power? Or will he lose love and his equal before he realizes how much he needs it? Falling in love with a powerful man is never easy, but losing him is even worse.
